The People

Social housing is for those most in need, for the duration of their need, and the vast majority of tenants are everyday people. In fact, the majority of people in social housing are seniors and people with disabilities.

Some people require short-term assistance; others may need longer. Social housing provides a safe place for people to get their lives back on track and support themselves in order to transition into private rental or home ownership.

You or someone you know may need social housing at some time due to events like serious illness, hard times, job loss, divorce or domestic violence.
